Cancer is always on the run — growing, changing, and even disguising itself. But researchers at Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Iowa are keeping pace with personalized medicine. Radiation that can hit a moving lung tumor. Research that hunts for gene mutations. Therapies that help the immune system destroy hiding cancer cells. Join us to learn about all the ways Iowa researchers are targeting cancer.

 

$20 per person course fee
Tuition covers all 3-weeks of program entrance, materials, parking and refreshments. Space is limited, registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
